MBACP (Accred) Registered Counsellor

About me

I am a qualified, highly experienced and BACP accredited counsellor for adults and young people and work from my private office in Greetland (Just outside of Halifax).

I offer face to face appointments as well as video and telephone sessions.

My focus is on your individual needs. I will help you to explore and understand your issues, emotions, thoughts and behaviours, which will then enable you to make positive and empowering changes to your life.

I am an integrative counsellor which means that I am trained and experienced in various counselling approaches and techniques, so I can work in a way which best suits your needs.

Counselling is a confidential service and I work to the ethical framework as set out by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP)

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
